The Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI) has urged businessmen to follow the mid-day break rule and not engage workers at construction or other sites exposed to high temperature in the afternoon for three months.

OCCI has also urged businesses on the necessity of adhering to Article 16 which deals with the regulations on occupational safety and health. The article states, “Workers shall not be employed at construction sites or high temperature locations from 12.30pm to 3.30pm throughout June, July and August every year.”
